Disabling autorun on XP

Could anyone tell me how you completely disable autorun on Windows XP, as it's driving me mad! I've tried tellng it to take no action for every media type, but it still autoplays when I in sert a CD or CDRom.

If you hold down SHIFT (and keep it held down) when you insert a disk it should not autorun.

Probably not quite the answer you were looking for, sorry.

As XP also has a Device Manager I presume it will be similar to 98 in that you select CD-ROM and then highlight the drive, click Properties and enable/disable Auto Insert Notification.
